Circling Rivers welcomes David Michael Belczyk, whose poetry collection Travelers will be published by CR in June 2023. “These are poignant songs of longing and desire that evoke the complexities of attraction to the real and imagined, the actual and the mythic, the love that compels the poet to meander for meaning ‘toward the end of all roads.’” — Orlando Ricardo Menes, The Gospel of Wildflowers and Weeds

See the Travelers book page for more, and a sample. Advance review copies of Travelers are available; request from Jean Huets.
